Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends! We are enjoying a meal with some of the family here in Alaska. There will be 7 adults and 2 children - more than I usually have in my home, but not so much that I feel anxious. In fact, I feel just the opposite. It's still 1 1/2 hours till dinner and everything is ready except making the gravy after I pull the turkey from the oven. Now I could stress about the turkey because 6 1/2 hours seems like a long time to roast anything, but that's what the directions say to do for a 20 lb turkey. I choose not to stress. If it's dry we'll put more gravy on it and if it's undercooked, I'll stick it back in for a bit and we'll just get hungrier with anticipation.
I'm thankful for my family, grandkids, friends, pets, church family, co-workers, jobs, home, cars, and all the other things that many people aren't so fortunate to have. I am truly blessed with an abundance of good things.
Thank you all for being my friend!
ps It's snowing big fluffy flakes and looks beautiful!
